The FitzWilliam has an extremely varied collection ranging from ancient Egypt to fine art. It is well worth a visit! The cafe was good and the shop had a good range of items and souvenirs.

This is a beautiful building from both outside and within. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre and is just across the road from Fitzbillies Cake Shop.

Inside there are some interesting exhibits which are clearly labelled and moderately (not annoyingly) child friendly. The collection is quite eclectic and somewhat reminiscent of the Burrell collection in Glasgow.

It is also free - so very good value for money - especially in Cambridge where just about everything else charges for entry.

Interesting exhibits and its free. There are exhibits from all over the world and we were unable to see everything in the time we had, so we will be visiting again
